    I spent one night at Gaia Hostel during carnaval. The hostel has a great location in the trendy neighborhood of Botafogo, a 5 minute walk from the metro. The staff were welcoming when I arrived at 5am and were able to get me checked in so I could rest on the couch. The security is good with a locked gate, key cards for rooms, and lockers for each guest. Well equipped facility with a kitchen, TV room and a courtyard. Definitely a lovely & affordable place to stay and meet other backpackers in Rio

    Clean chill hostel. Cool art and nice open spaces. Excellent price. Staff is helpful. Breakfast is R15 and basic. No atmosphere or organized activities. Good if you need personal time. Not good if you want to party or meet people. Gets loud at night because it's next to a busy street.
